If… Then… Mental Model to Happiness

Inline with what I have read once on a book by Srikumar Rao, this video by Sadia talks about exactly such a mental model – which is a flawed one – many people hold in the pursuit of happiness.

If … Then … Model to Happiness

The if…then… model seems to be the root cause of unhappiness, since it puts happiness as a product that one can feel only after some requirements fulfilled. Also, this particular model oversimplifies happiness, something that is way too complex.

Happiness doesn’t work that way in real life.
